“A fine collection and excellent retrospective. With both color and black and white images taken at myriad sites and in Webster’s studio, this book captures the vibe and ethos of its time, yet don’t seem at all dated. Webster has his own voice, and was able to photograph his subjects with an ease and naturalness that any photographer should aspire to. See it for yourself.”
“Every big shot will appreciate this hugely impressive “Big Shots” book gallery of iconic celebrity photos by Guy Webster who created some of the most memorable images from 1960s Hollywood.”
“[Guy Webster’s] candid shots were audacious and revealing...So many of them were defining. Like the sepia one of a young Hush Puppy wearing Van Dyke Parks on the cover of Song Cycle. It’s perfect. It visually defines the artist as intensely as does the music...Webster’s cinema celebrity photographs are equally evocative and iconic.”
"The Kubernik brothers' breathless, succinct summaries capture the era's momentous cultural changes, as well as the historic dynamic reflected in Webster's portraits."
“Beginning with his controversial cover shot of The Mamas and the Papas first album, Webster would go on to photograph musicians and actors...whose work would go on to indelibly shape the decade. Big Shots is a fascinating overview of one of rock photography’s early innovators, whose career spanned more than 40 years.”
“Guy Webster was the photographer of '60's counterculture, capturing intimate portraits of young talent like Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and Jack Nicholson before they became American legends...It's very glamorous and very rock n' roll.”
—The Daily Beast
“Throughout his decades-long career, photographer Guy Webster has captured some of the most iconic figures in music, film and politics from the Rolling Stones to Dean Martin to Bill Clinton during their prime.”
"A thrill for anyone interested in the L.A. music and film scene of the ’60s and ’70s, when artists were breaking boundaries and building a new aesthetic...In this age of Instagram and Tumblr and Snapchat, Webster’s photos remind readers of the beauty of a timeless picture."
